Carnival of Jacmel 2014, "Pote Kole poun avanse", Sunday, Feb. 23
Under the theme "Pote Kole pou n avanse", the 2014 edition of the Jacmel Carnival will take place on Sunday, February 23. The festivity, expected to be steeped in the rich culture of the country, will be an outdoor, day-long event that will have spectators thrilling to the sounds, smells, and sights that only Haiti can offer.
As said by the South-East's Office of Tourism consultant, Michaelle Craan, the festival will show Haiti's particular heritage, passed down from folklore through decades' worth of oral tradition. The event, a mainstream highlight of Haitian society, has been a customary rite that allows those who take part to feel part of something unifying and special.
One can participate in the festivities of Carnival in Jacmel as a voyeur or as part of the dancing, reveling crowd. As the city welcomes many visitors within the season for the event, rooms at the beautiful boutique hotels are in high demand. Those wishing to stay must book their room in advance.
As busy as the day itself will be, the days leading up to it have been proving just as engaging. In preparation for the big day, the city's mayor, representatives from the Ministries of Tourism and Culture, the Police, the Red Cross, the Chamber of Commerce for the South-East and from the Tourist Association of the South-East have been meeting to plan the event. Among other issues such as security and health, they've discussed the form the show will take, hammering out details of the artistry, music, costumes and dance.
